Everyone’s saying the same thing about Bournemouth’s deal with Chelsea for Asmir Begovic

Bournemouth have agreed a fee with Chelsea for their stand-in goalkeeper, and it looks like the Blues are set to make a profit

Apparently Asmir Begovic still exists, and he’s on his way to Bournemouth. 

Having spent a couple of seasons sitting on Chelsea’s bench staring forlornly at Thibaut Courtois, the giant Bosnian is heading to the South coast.

“You want me back on the bench?”

And amazingly, Chelsea have made a pretty penny on the 29-year-old, with the Cherries reportedly agreeing on a £10million fee for the goalkeeper.

That’s £2m MORE than what they paid Stoke for him two seasons ago, despite the shot-stopper making just 19 appearances for the Blues in that time.

That’s some pretty tidy business.

Bournemouth fans won’t mind though, with the signing of Begovic a huge upgrade on their current No 1 Artur Boruc.

What’s more, Begovic will be relieved to move to a club that can guarantee him first-team football.

Speaking earlier this year, Begovic said: ”For me, it is about wanting to play, I find it very difficult, not playing for a long time and that’s something that I would like to do.

“If the club would allow me to do that, under the right circumstances, then that’s what I’ll do.”

So everyone’s happy, I guess?

Chelsea’s next port of call will be to find a goalie who’s willing to sit on the bench full-time.
